I just ran into this in g-0.3.1-1.fc20

Why is this considered "Medium" instead of "High"? All of my tasks in gtg were just deleted because I setup syncing to RTM. That's really bad, wouldn't you say?

Yes, thats very bad !

But, this is considered "Medium" because RTM is a backend for a third-party service and not a core part of GTG itself.
I like to mark only those bugs as "High" which cause unexpected crashes or segfaults (so I find Izidor's decision justified)

GTG's README states that RTM backend has not been maintained for some time and it's use should be avoided.

(I think it would be better to not ship a module rather than ship a broken module which causes inconvenience to users. We'll surely consider it for 0.3.2).

@Pawan Your patch still works for gtk2 gtg. But it needs to be updated for gtk3 gtg. Can you please open a PR for master branch on github? Thanks.

Hi is there a patch for this for gtk3 just starting out with GTG added my RTM sync and lost all my tasks in GTG. They're still in RTM though.

Be good to have this feature but understand it's a 3rd party app.

Anyway thanks for reading and glad it's a known bug.
